Picasso's Drawings 1890-1921 - Susan Grace Galassi and Marilyn McCully

Picasso's Drawings 1890-1921 by Susan Grace Galassi and Marilyn McCully follows the dazzling development of his drawing practice from the precocious academic exercises of his youth to his renewal of classicism in his virtuoso output of the early 1920s. A selection of more than seventy works on paper, with extended entries, highlights his stylistic experiments and techniques during this roughly thirty-year period, which begins and ends in a classical mode and encompasses his most radical innovations. This title includes an essay by Susan Grace Galassi that provides a detailed study of Picasso's drawing practice and explores his interest in the Old Masters, and an essay by Marilyn McCully considers the early critical responses to Picasso's drawings. These discussions of Picasso's style, sources and techniques demonstrate how drawing served as an essential means of invention and discovery for the artist.
